I have a Sears Series 90 washer . Model number 110 26954690, ser# CF4401814, stock #26954 --- doesn't drain after the wash cycle. Doesn't spin, just stops. It has a digital, led readout and the readout shows a flashing "OL" for awhile until the unit just shuts down completely. I have seen another post with a similar problem, but am not sure what the fix is in this case. Also, in order to work on it, how can I get it to drain? Can you help? Thank you.

I think I solved the problem. I realized that OL means "open lid" and, when I depressed the switch, the spin cycle started, but then the lid switch broke away. Turns out that the plastic screw holders snapped just enough for the lid switch to not work. For now I got it to drain but need some help in getting the cabinet off so that I can access the switch. I might be able to fix it with super glue for now since the switch works when it's pressed in. However, I would like to figure out the part number/manufacturer. Is this a whirlpool product?

** [Kenmore washer] model 110.26954690 **

That is a Whirlpool built 'direct drive' model.

** Turns out that the plastic screw holders snapped just enough for the lid switch to not work. **

That is a common failure on your washer design.

** need some help in getting the cabinet off so that I can access the switch. **

You can read about accessing and replacing the lid switch on Whirlpool's direct drive washer design at the following link and see the lid switch for your model at the second.

You could try but it is not so expensive a part it couldn't be replaced and possibly save yourself from doing the job multiple times. Fix it once and fix it right?

Thank you very much for the detailed answer. I am glad to be able to add one more Fix-it-yerself option to this site for those of us who are in need. Thanks for all your help. We all appreciate that you are here as a resource. And, yes, I agree that it's better to fix it one time the right way.
